This place is the best! Luciano and Laura were so helpful. Gave us rides into town, made us a late night snack. We had an awesome stay!

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in between Florence and Venice on our honeymoon. We were lucky enough to have place to ourselves and it was so peaceful - a welcome break after three busy days in Florence. We had no trouble finding the B&B, Laura's directions via email were very clear and it was well signposted.... More

We stayed here for three nights and booked because of the great reviews from Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a great spot just out of Sienna and a good base for exploring Tuscany by car. The property is a beautifully restored Tuscan farmhouse with lovely rustic furniture to match. It is spotlessly...

We were lucky enough to spend three wonderful nights with Luciano and Laura during our recent trip to Italy. They were exceptional hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Their willingness to do what was necessary to ensure our needs were met went well beyond what could reasonably be expected. They clearly love what they do and love having others... More

I will talk about the good things first. As many others commented, the dinner served was EXCELLENT. The location was really great. We got up early in the morning and drove around, got some beautiful pictures. Bad experience: - No room. We arrived at the hotel at 6:30 and was told the room we reserved was given to others 30...

We had a most pleasant stay with Laura and Luciano at their B&B. Nice country location, a bit difficult to find, but close to Siena(15 minutes drive) and Montalcino(half an hour drive). We had a big room, with a nice view of the fields. Laura's Ribollita(typical tuscany's vegetable soup) was delicious and Luciano's white wine was wonderful. They even invited... More

We found this property through Tripadvisor.com. I wanted a true Tuscan experience while in Italy, and this is it. It was difficult to find and I WILL tell you that if you are driving through Italy, you NEED, and I underline, NEED a GPS. Otherwise we wouldn't have made it to any of our beautiful destinations. Laura was very kind... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in September 2007. Had we known just how wonderful it was we would definitely have stayed longer. The location is beatiful, the food excellent and Laura, Luciano and their son Marco the sweetest and most gracious hosts. Our stay there was one of the highlights of our 3 week trip! S.R.... More

Wow! Me and my wife stayed with Laura and Luciano for 5 nights in September. We did not want to leave. If you truly want to experience the Tuscan culture, I can't think of a better place to stay. Laura's cooking and Luciano's own wine are incredible!!! My wife still dreams of Laura's soup (I think its called Ribolitta, but... More

My husband and stayed here for three nights during our trip around Italy, and just as the other reviews say you cannot beat the scenery or the warmth of the owners Luciano and Laura. We stayed in the main farmhouse in a HUGE room by European standards, with a wonderfully equipped bathroom. Our only complaint was there was no air... More
